My earlier posting was not clear so I'm trying this again with greater specificity:

I'm looking for a great place to eat after seeing a movie at AMC (2nd Avenue and 31 Street).
Quality and taste of food is absolutely paramount.
Cleanliness is important - Don't even THINK about recommending SARGES DELI!
Decor , style, candle lights, perfumed soap in the toilet NOT A FACTOR.
Must be within 6 block radius of the movie theater... give or take .

No one in the group has any food allergies or food issues
Everybody eats EVERYTHING, so diet is NOT an issue either.

Thank you.

  1. There are million and a half questions about this very area. Some of the names that pop up repeatedly are Blue Smoke, Ethos, inoteca, Waterfront, Ali Baba, Turkish Kitchen, Pio pio, iTrulli

    1. Last Saturday we had a great early dinner at El Parador on 34th bet 1 and 2. Outstanding, guacamole, mole poblano, sauteed soft shell crab and duck tacos.
      Then we went to the movie theater to see Terminator.

      1. no Sarges - so is 2nd Ave deli out of the question?
